Villa Trasqua

Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2016

Decent QPR #chianticlassico - Deep magenta-purple hue in glass. Uncorks pretty tight but scent evolves nicely in wine fridge over a few days. Mellow dry cherry, leather, tilled earth aromas. Medium-body, laid back dark fruit taste, toasted oak and some grippy tannins finishing with lithe acidity. Not too bad for ~$10 at Costco though I might prefer more fruit + acidity for creamy pasta pairings. — 2 years ago

Castello di Monsanto

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2016

Homemade pizza with a 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva from Castello di Monsanto. The wine displays aromas of red currant, black berries, spices, licorice, green pepper and some other herbal notes. The palate confirms the nose with the dark berry notes. Medium finish and some chewy tannins. We decanted it for 1 hour. Lovely bottle for the price point.

Isole e Olena

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2015

Lower alcohol than past years; better balance, less VA...and better for it. Fine, dusty and rare beef-bloody with an attractive, resinous top note. This should be a real treat in 3-4 years. #isoleeolena #chianticlassico — 4 years ago

Coltibuono

Badia a Coltibuono Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend

Odd mix of mascarpone and rubber tree, almond extract, cookie dough, caramelized banana, candied pecan with cinnamon bagel and cedar, fir tree, croissant, marmalade and loose cigar filler. Orange caramel glass on the palate opening to clove and candied ginger, even bringing an accompanying heat. Peach reduction, rum cake, and vanilla in abundance. Spirited and layered. #vinsanto #badiaacoltibuono #vinsantodelchianticladsico #doc #organicwines #estatewine #chianticlassico #seasonalwine #organicitalianwine #vinoitaliano #dessertwine — 2 years ago

Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2015

The 2015 Fontodi Chianti Classico is an over-performer in every possible way, showing masses of black cherry and raspberry with dusty minerals, hints of cedar and new leather. There’s a cool-toned precision beneath it’s warm vintage fruit, with grippy tannins which quickly firm up the experience, while zesty acids tug at the cheeks. A minute later and I can still feel it’s youthful poise, along with lingering tart berries and hints of spice. #fontodi #chianticlassico #sangiovese #tuscanwine — 2 years ago

So soft. The tannins are fine grained and quite supple. Aromas of black fruit, paprika and dark chocolate. #chianti #chianticlassico #granselezione — 2 years ago

Fattoria Poggerino

Nuovo Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2016

Heavy floral notes with lavender and violet, carnation, cherry blossom and red rose, booming amid dried black cherry espresso and cocoa, though distinctly separate. Dark toasted sesame, rye bread, and crumbled earth. Bright cherry palate turns dusty in all the right ways, leaning into cocoa nib and espresso oils. Lovely and dry with dried cran and red currant but exhibits miles of lingering blood orange citrus and crystalline cherry. Gorgeous. Eternally evolving and all of it amazing. The concrete egg has made something ethereal that also shows a mysterious depth. Great range.
